Celtic managed to get a 3-2 win over Spartak Moscow against all the odds in the midweek action. Due to the tough trip, they were expected to struggle in the match against Hearts during the weekend. However, Neil Lennon’s men battled to a 1-0 win over the championship contenders.
Speaking after the match, the Celtic manager was visibly delighted with the performance of his players in the last two matches. Neil Lennon immediately said after the Spartak Moscow win that he was one of the proudest men in all of Europe. His happiness has been increased even more following this victory. As a result of this victory, Celtic now have a two-point advantage over given him into second place. Even more impressive is the fact that Celtic have this advantage after having played a game less than their title contender.
“I’m delighted. It’s a magnificent win and tops off a fantastic week for us all. The players have been tremendous. You could see there was a bit of fatigue kicking in second half and I totally understand that. We are delighted with the win and the clean sheet. We had chances to put the game away and at 1-0 you are always a bit concerned, but Georgios is a big player for us. Gary (Hooper) looked a little bit tired but the strength of the squad is good,” said the Celtic manager after the win over Hearts. Celtic have played only eight league matches this campaign.
